Your task
You are required to prepare a Statement of Work (SOW) based on your tender for the contract to build the new Sydney Cruise Terminal that you have prepared in the first assessment.
Assessment Description
The purpose of this assessment is to foster students’ ability to evaluate and determine project viability, including the analysis required in the selection process. Students will also demonstrate the criteria required to evaluate the success of projects based on an organisation’s goals, strategy and standards.
Assessment Instructions
Presume that your project tender from Assessment 1 was accepted by stakeholders. Based on this, you are now required to prepare a Statement of Work (SOW) based on the information contained in the case study and the details you presented in Assessment 1. As the Sydney Cruise Terminal is a real-life case study, you are expected to compliment your work with additional research on the project and site.
Your Statement of Work must contain all the required elements as covered in the course, including an introduction, scope, location, main tasks, milestones, deliverables, schedule, standards, success criteria, requirements, budget outlines, any other relevant information and a closing statement. These elements must follow the information contained in the case study and be strictly linked to the proposal you presented in Assessment 1.
While this is a written analysis, you can include any tables, analysis or diagrammatical elements you deem appropriate. You will be required to include a minimum of 15 references in your Statement of Work at least 5 of which must come from academic journals or textbooks and use Kaplan Harvard Referencing Style. Wikipedia and other ‘popular’ sites are not to be used.
